The UFC Middleweight Champion of the World is undefeated under the UFC banner. Only one man has come close to ending the reign of "The Spider." Whatever self-given nickname you want to use or however you want to downplay what happened in August of 2010, Chael Sonnen is the only man to come close to defeating Silva in the UFC.
The proud West Linn, Oregon native was minutes away from taking the 12 pounds of gold back home. This time around, Sonnen looks to complete the task at hand. But has he awoken the inner-beast inside the champion?
Silva has been outspoken at the UFC press events recently. He has been downright scary in his statements and demeanor. Until Saturday night, we won't know if this will benefit or hinder the champion. It is all speculation at this point.
What we do know is what we saw the first go-around. Sonnen utilized his wrestling expertly against the Brazilian, hammering away for over four rounds until he got caught in a triangle choke and tapped out. Was Silva injured? Was it just a near perfect game plan? Can he do it again? We should find out on Saturday.
Betting Odds: Silva (-275) over Sonnen (+235) at www.sportbet.com.
Prediction: This is such an interesting fight. While some detractors may say the first go around was a bit boring, I found it intriguing. We had not seen Silva dominated in that fashion. It was interesting to watch the first time and will be more so the second time.
Sonnen has to close the distance and do exactly what he did at UFC 117. Silva, however, has experienced this inside the Octagon now. Giving him more information to break down an opponent is deadly. That is the biggest X-Factor in this fight. Silva saw the best Sonnen; Sonnen did not see the best Silva. Out to prove a point, on his feet this time, Silva should take out the challenger in jaw-dropping fashion.
Anderson Silva wins by knockout in the first round.
